COMMENTS

Terms up to 115 are the atomic numbers of the elements of group 15 in the periodic table. Those elements are also known as pnictogens.

FORMULA

From Colin Barker, Jun 19 2016, corrected Jun 26 2016: (Start)

a(n) = (6*(-7+(-1)^n)+(25+3*(-1)^n)*n+12*n^2+2*n^3)/12.

a(n) = (n^3+6*n^2+14*n-18)/6 for n even.

a(n) = (n^3+6*n^2+11*n-24)/6 for n odd.

a(n) = 2*a(n-1)+a(n-2)-4*a(n-3)+a(n-4)+2*a(n-5)-a(n-6) for n>7.

G.f.: x^2*(7+x-4*x^2-2*x^3+x^4+x^5) / ((1-x)^4*(1+x)^2).

(End)
